For the last social of 2017 GoGeomatics and the Canadian Remote Sensing Society (https://crss-sct.ca/) are coming together again this year to throw our Christmas social. This is a fun free open social networking event the Ottawa Geospatial community is invited to join.
We get a private room in the basement at the James St Pub. Bring your Holiday cheer! There will be free snacks for everyone like nachos and wings!
As a special treat this year we will be taking a look at the work of Regie Alam, President ASG (https://ca.linkedin.com/in/asgmapping) Mapping Ltd and Saeid Homayouni, Ph.D., IEEE SM (https://ca.linkedin.com/in/saeidhomayouni)Senior Research Associate with LAGGISS lab. The two will do a presentation on their experience this past summer on the use of UAVs in Precision Agriculture and in phenomics research.
Phenomics is an area of biology concerned with the measurement of phenomes (a phenome is the set of physical and biochemical traits belonging to a given organism) as they change in response to genetic mutation and environmental influences.
